About the event
The Call Out docuseries program is a platform for The Black community; Welcome to the first season.
This programming examines special topics that are ignored or seen as taboo within Black culture. Each episode brings new featured guests and special segments. During the series, we hear the perspectives of community members, academics, essential workers, families of those who affected, friends, and of course... the people experiencing adversity themselves. Those who know nothing about the special topics are welcomed to learn. The Call Out is open to all in our community. No dress code or additional preparation is necessary - come as you are, and bring your most authentic self. Your authentic voice will not be politically corrected or translated. The Call Out - 4th Edition special topic: #BlackMentalHealth
What are the realities of mental health-ing, while Black? How has COVID19 impacted that? What are the intersections of mental health within our community? Our guests will examine how Home Life (parenting, culture, etc), School, Being in the Streets, Sex Work, Abuse, and Religion have all impacted mental health in the Black community, and how to rise above life's adversities.
